We are absolutely thrilled that Reception and Year 5 have been able to buddy up this term!
It has been fantastic to see the children get to know each other, play together and look out for one another. Year R and Year 5 have truly been embracing St James’ values by showing love and kindness to their new friends.
The Year 5 children have been supportive and encouraging for the younger children’s learning.
Reception enjoyed sharing their favourite games and toys from home with their older buddies.
Year 5 were very excited to get their hands back on some of the fantastic toys and learning areas that they missed from their own days in Reception. Sand pits, construction and colouring – all in one afternoon!
Our kind, supportive and grown up Year 5 pupils fell easily into the position of teachers and role models.
Keep an eye out for more brilliant buddy photos in the future!
